It's not like blogging is easy, you know

It's time for my periodic promotion of friends who are more accomplished than me.

Two new books out this week. First, Myla Goldberg's Wickett's Remedy, her follow-up to the lovely Bee Season (don't ask her about the movie), is a cerebral but haunting novel of a life in the 1918 flu pandemic. Very different from Bee Season, as you'll no doubt be hearing, but who wants to read the same book twice, anyway?

I haven't yet read Josh Shenk's Lincoln's Melancholy, but he's been working on it for almost as long as I've known him, and I suspect it's going to be a monster.

So, plague and depression. That's your tip for the day. You're welcome.

Love in the time of Flu Season and No-Prozac Nation. Sounds like a plan.
